Being insoluble in water, orally administered cannabinoids cannot undergo gastrointestinal absorption until they are incorporated into mixed micelles, which are slowly formed in the small intestine. This presentation will demonstrate how to ultrasonically manufacture translucent “water-soluble” CBD/THC nanoemulsions that can be readily mixed into and administered as beverages. Since nanoemulsions closely mimic naturally-formed mixed micelle suspensions, they significantly accelerate the onset of action and increase the bioavailability of incorporated cannabinoids.
